Having time to relax and unwind with that special someone in our lives can be really important. Reconnecting as a couple, enjoying each others company, and reminding yourselves why you choose to be together is key to maintaining a strong and healthy relationship. This can be a simple as a day or two in a lodge in the UK or as extravagant as a two week escape to Mexico. If you are looking for luxury holiday destinations for couples then we have some great suggestions.

Thailand is a very romantic destination. Think white sandy beaches, amazing scenery and a huge array of trips and excursions ranging from jungle explorations to walking around Buddhist temples. The Avista Hideaway resort and spa is the ultimate in romantic luxury accommodation. With a tranquil setting on a hill top in beautiful Phuket, the hotel is perfect for relaxing. Gourmet dining, infinity pools, sumptuous bedrooms and breath-taking views are just a few good reasons to choose this resort. There is also a onsite spa with a excellent range of treatments to choose from including traditional Thai massage. Although peaceful the hotel is just a 2 minute tuk tuk ride away from Patong beach with its fantastic nightlife!

When we think of luxury holiday destinations for couples, The Maldives is up there with the most popular destinations! Its top of the list for honeymooners and the accommodation doesn’t get much more romantic than the Veligandu Island Resort. Surrounded by coral reefs, while sandy beeches and sweeping lagoons, the resort is perfect for relaxing with your special someone. The villas are simply stunning! Many are directly over the water and have private hot tubs and gorgeous views over the lagoon. A la carte dining can be enjoyed overlooking the beach and there are also a couple of bars where you can sip cocktails as the sun sets. Water sports are plentiful and the snorkelling and diving around here is world class!

Much closer to home the charming town of York is a great choice for a romantic mini break. As wall as excellent shopping and numerous places to eat and drink, the city is also a good choice for sightseeing and you can take a bus tour or enjoy a boat trip down the river. For romantic accommodation we love Faweather Grange Lodges. These beautifully designed log cabins feature modern interiors, all the mod cons such as dishwashers and TVs and romantic touches including log fires and luxurious private out door hot tubs. Popular with honeymooners, the Serenity 1 lodges even have a private sauna and most have views of the surrounding woodland.
